: New: Link: ‘Epically heroic and tragic’: how a family treasure hunt ended with a son lost at sea

Article in the Guardian: Hunter Lewis spent years creating the adventure, but it ended tragically when he didn’t return from preparing the final clue

The searches took participants all over Humboldt county, rappelling down a cliff, climbing a railroad trestle and hiking secret trails. Dozens of people participated in the adventure, which had elaborate clues, involving code and, in one case, Braille.

When I read "elaborate clues, involving code and, in one case, Braille" I think Here's a kid who knew how to have fun.

But when I read "rappelling down a cliff" I think I wish the youth of today knew about the safety problems of past puzzlehunts.

Rest in peace, kid.
